Review

"If you don't want to go with a DVD and prefer a CD or book for your practices, this one is top of the line for those who need a more gentle supported type of yoga." (The Pagan Review, Jan 2010)

"Cheri is a leading light in different kinds of yoga, which she teaches all over the world. Because of her vast experience and her constant openness to learning more, her book can certainly benefit yoga students as well as anyone interested in the healing arts in general." (Laura Huxley, author The Child of Your Dreams)

“As one who has experienced the gentle, healing power of Cheri Clampett’s work, I highly recommend The Therapeutic Yoga Kit to all those who wish to enjoy greater peace, harmony, and vibrant energy in their lives.” (Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of Five Wishes and coauthor of Conscious Loving)

“Cheri and Biff have humbly and honestly tested the techniques they present in The Therapeutic Yoga Kit. If readers practice the ideas presented in this book they will find many seeds of health and healing.” (Paul Grilley, author of Yin Yoga)

“Simple yoga practices are a blessing in their ability to bringing about profound and lasting healing. Through Cheri Clampett’s intuitive heart and teaching experience, The Therapeutic Yoga Kit offers us a perfect prescription for abundant well being.” (Nischala Joy Devi, author of The Secret Power of Yoga: A Woman’s Guide to the Heart and Spirit)

The Therapeutic Yoga Kit is an asset to any yoga practice and a valuable tool for any yoga teacher.” (Ganga White, author of Yoga Beyond Belief, and Tracey Rich, director of White Lotus Yoga Foundation)

The Therapeutic Yoga Kit offers practical information applicable to anyone and everyone interested in the art and science of yoga. Cheri Clampett and Biff Mithoefer’s creative inspiration is a healing tool for us all to embrace.” (LeRoy R. Perry Jr., D.C., C-Ped., five-time official Olympic Team doctor and president of the Intern)

" . . . the best collection of materials I've seen for practicing yin yoga, yoga therapy, and restorative poses. . . . As a yin yoga teacher who works with seniors and fibromyalgia patients, I can't say enough good things about the therapeutic yoga kit. The kit is accessible for beginners and inspiring for experienced students and teachers." (Jessica Teel, reviewer, Feb 2009)

From the Back Cover

YOGA / EXERCISE

“As one who has experienced the gentle, healing power of Cheri Clampett’s work, I highly recommend The Therapeutic Yoga Kit to all those who wish to enjoy greater peace, harmony, and vibrant energy in their lives.”
--Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of Five Wishes and coauthor of Conscious Loving

“Cheri and Biff have humbly and honestly tested the techniques they present in The Therapeutic Yoga Kit. If readers practice the ideas presented in this book they will find many seeds of health and healing.”
--Paul Grilley, author of Yin Yoga

In The Therapeutic Yoga Kit, Cheri Clampett and Biff Mithoefer combine the gentle healing of Therapeutic Yoga and the quiet awareness of a yin practice to present 16 gentle postures that relieve stress and fatigue and promote recovery from injury and illness. Therapeutic Yoga is a blend of restorative yoga, gentle yoga, breath work, hands-on self-healing techniques, and meditation that releases the body from the fight-or-flight response caused by traumatic events and life’s everyday stresses. A yin practice encourages the attitude of acceptance and helps us leave behind our yang need for constant striving and action.

Each pose represents a gentle, adapted posture that is held for 10 minutes or more in a fully supported state. The authors also include transitional yoga movements and stretches to perform during the routine to relieve stiffness, rejuvenate the muscles, and lubricate the joints. Sixteen posture cards and a 75-minute audio CD, featuring a guided routine and meditation, accompany the text to facilitate the creation of a personalized practice. The authors emphasize achieving total relaxation in specific postures to activate the body’s self-healing abilities. It is in this place of comfort and stillness that true healing begins.

CHERI CLAMPETT is the founder and director of the Therapeutic Yoga Training Program. She teaches Therapeutic Yoga at hospitals, wellness centers, and yoga centers worldwide, including the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, and lives in California. BIFF MITHOEFER teaches Yin Yoga at Omega Institute, throughout the United States, and internationally. He is the author of The Yin Yoga Kit and a founder and director of the Jamtse Sponsorship Program for the support of Tibetan refugee children. He lives in Vermont.

By Jessica Teel VINE VOICE on February 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
The therapeutic yoga kit is the best collection of materials I've seen for practicing yin yoga, yoga therapy, and restorative poses. The kit is fantastic for a variety of conditions: chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia; arthritis; illness and injury; pregnancy; seniors; and anyone wanting a yin yoga practice using props. I've taught yoga for fibromyalgia and I highly recommend the poses in this kit for this population.

What makes this kit so great is how practical it is. Small cards with photos and instructions for poses are included and handy to place on your mat during practice. The companion CD is perfect for a guided practice. The book is packed with useful explanatory information but is edited skillfully.

This kit contains the best collection of pose variations for restorative yoga and yin yoga I've seen. The prop use is particularly handy for yin yoga students and teachers, since yin yoga creator Paul Grilley's book and DVD do not include much prop use. Students will find the poses easy to follow. Teachers will find new pose variations for their restorative and yin classes. The color cards are also handy to use while teaching.

As a yin yoga teacher who works with seniors and fibromyalgia patients, I can't say enough good things about the therapeutic yoga kit. The kit is accessible for beginners and inspiring for experienced students and teachers.

This kit is based on in depth knowledge of yoga. Anyone can do the yoga in this book. I love to pull out the cards of the poses I want to do, put them on the floor next to me, put the CD on and relax into the therapeutic poses. No matter how I feel, I can do them by letting gravity do the work, and I always feel rejuvenated afterwards. The book has great explanations and detailed photo descriptions. I highly recommend this to beginners, anyone experiencing a health challenge, as well as expert yogis that want to try a new approach.

Everyone NEEDS this wonderful tool box for self-healing and relaxation. Whether you're pregnant, healing from injury or illness, or just plain in need of a little tender loving self-care...experienced yogi or absolute beginner...gentle practioner or vinyasa enthusiast...this is a practice for everyone. Don't just look at the pictures. There is a treasure trove of helpful information in the book. If you occassionally feel like you don't have the energy to pick up the book or use the helpful posture cards...there's a wonderful guided practice CD as well. This is a wonderful gift for yourself or someone you know.

Not what I expected. However, it gives some restorative 'yin' yoga postures and how to use propping. After taking a 'yin' yoga class I became curious as to what the flows were in sequencing. Both the class and the book could have more information on how to use propping - with pillows, blankets, bolsters, etc. - and photograph them with actual people with scoliosis for instance in a posture. Far too many yoga books, this one included, show people who seem to have no problem with flexibility in postures that certainly someone with limitations would not be able to get into it. Showing inflexibility will be a big seller too, as most bodies are inflexible. Would like to see more 'moderated' pictures and specific movements for specific problems such as obesity, scoliosis, 60+, etc.

Yoga and exercise blend well in a kit including a book, 16 color cards and a 75-minute CD on therapeutic yoga poses and applications. Each pose represents an adapted posture held for 10 minutes or more in a fully supported state, along with transitional yoga movements and stretches. Not suitable for library lending, this makes a fine gift choice or pick for any individual interested in furthering yoga techniques and applying them to healing.

This kit is Restorative Yoga and, while restorative yoga is therapeutic, there is nothing new here that I haven't already seen (and practiced) in Judith Lasater's "Relax and Renew". I was very disappointed as I was hoping for something different. When I wanted to return it, I received two e-mails from Amazon reps telling me to keep it (they must've felt badly about all the other things I was returning) -- needless to say, I was amazed and touched by the suggestion and their generosity. Guess what? The next day a UPS guy was at my door to pick it up........ Surprise!!
